Adji Dieye: Aphasia
Library Shelf Location 18.DIEY
Publication Date 2023

Themes of postcolonialism and nation building play a prominent role in the artistic practice of Italian-Senegalese artist Adji Dieye. 'Aphasia', after the language disorder, is a new video work the artist produced in Dakar. The work examines the role of language in the formation of the nation of Senegal through an interplay of photographs, video, and performance.

She therefore not only engages with alternative forms of knowledge production but also delves into autobiographical facets and connections. This book both presents the work and contextualises Dieye's approach through texts contributed by photography theorist Katrin Bauer and art critic and curator Olamiju Fajemisin.
